From the Field: Mealy Parrot
May 28, 2015
The Mealy Parrot (Amazona farinosa) is a large Amazona of Central and northern South America. It is almost all green with a bold white eyering of bare facial skin and a red patch in the secondaries. The species has suffered some declines due to trapping for the captive wildlife trade and habitat loss.
